The best in the area, the place, the atmosphere, the people, the food, the BEER!!!
I’d say to die for! My favorite is their Exponential Ale, only available, January-February. Although they say, they will have more next year. Its made with a Citra-hop, and let me tell you, it is GREAT.
Stopped here on my way back to MI from Chi & IN. Brewery was easy to find, lots of parking. I really didn’t like the huge smoke stack thing, looming over the town, but I don’t live there. Impressive tap list, big bar, and friendly staff. 100% worth a stop if you are anywhere in the area. Will gladly go back next time I go to Chicago or FFF.
One of my favorite brewpubs in northern Indiana. From the outside of the building you wouldn’t think it to be a restaurant or brewery unless you saw the awning that said it was. Inside the pub its really different, lots of exposed wood, really hits on the pub essence. The food has never been bad and on better than most of the surround restaurants on average, the perch sandwich with the chipotle mayo is my favorite. The beer selection is good. With 10 - 15 beers on tap all the time.

kind of a knotty pine place to drink and eat. friendly staff and customers are a plus. a very entertaining place, but their menu is slightly hoity-toity forme.
Always a big selection of beers.. I always hate walking into a brewpub and seeing only 5 beers. You won’t have that problem here. About 10-12 beers on tap always. Food is great, but a little overpriced. Close to outstanding outdoor mall, (1 minute away), and beach. Outside of pub fairly beat-up but inside nice. Waitstaff knowledgeable. Only knock is that beer is sometime not repeatable; tastes somewhat different every time.
Visited 4/27/08. Late Sunday evening. Another unimposing brewpub. Good looking brewpub. Long bar with about 14 beers on tap. Behind the bar was all glass with the brewing equipment on the other side. The service was great. The twins Jessie and Sara were knowledgeable and friendly. Late night munchies and I had the buffalo calamari, which was pretty good. There was a decent sized crowd at the time. One of my favorite aspects was the collection of steins for regular patrons. Glassblower Devin Somerville is apparently very talented for the glassware was ornate and beautifully visceral. It was a long day, but this place was great.
I wasn’t planning on stopping here, but I saw some highway signs while on a trip. So advertising really does work! The neighborhood is industrial and I wasn’t expecting much looking at the buliding on the outside. Inside, the place is very clean and looked brand new to me. Lots of cement and wood with glass between you and the brewing equipment. I had some great pasta while tasting. The beers were solid and above average, especially their pale ales. A pleasant surprise and I will deifnitely return if I am anywhere in the area again.
Great place. Didn’t have the food, focused on the beer but the menu looked intriguing. Brought along some friends who are beer novices and were treated great. Very impressed with the beer selection. 12 taps and not just the standard stuff. 3 IPAs on tap including a fantastic Double/Imperial IPA! Loved ’Curse the Goat’ Dopplebock as well. Not every beer was my favorite but there was something for everyone here. Don’t leave without trying one of the Bourbon Barrel series, wish I had bought a case. Outside appearance and ambiance is nothing special, but a real gem inside. Many thanks to Jim the assistant brewer for giving a mini tour of the brewery!
This is worth the trip for me because i can get dropped off here while the little lady will go shopping at the Lighthouse mall down the street,a very friendly place with good beer and i am hoping they come out with their Bourbon series soon.CHEERS!
This building is not much to look at on the outside, but clean and simple on the inside. Did not order food, but a decent selection. Nikki was the server and she was pleasant, courteous, attentive, and she obtained the ABV’s upon request. Thanks, Nikki! A nice selection of beers were available during this visit and most ended up with an overall average of between 13-15 and were average to above average. I will definitely revisit this establishment to see what’s new on the beer list.
